This book is the essence of Cecil Text book of Medicine, the seventh edition is the new edition of 2007. This book makes an in-depth analysis of clinical medicine by iconographies and schematic diagrams with large amount of video images and clinical pictures. Meanwhile, it focuses on the combination of clinical information and video information.
Charles C.J. Carpenter, Professor of Medicine at Brown University, was one of the founding Editors of Cecil Essentials of Medicine. He was also one of the major contributors articulating the concept that the founding Editors and all subsequent Editors have adhered to, namely, to provide a concise readable textbook for students of medicine of all ages. This Seventh Edition of Cecil Essentials, now titled Andreoli and Carpenter's Cecil Essentials of Medicine, will be Chuck's last effort with Essentials, and so the Editors, with great delight, are privileged to honor him, not only by naming the title of the book permanently in his name, but also in dedicating this Edition of Essentials to Chuck Carpenter.
Chuck is a remarkably splendid human being. His photograph defines precisely the nature of the man: a gentle man, a gentleman, implacably warm and generous in spirit and behavior.
As an academician, Chuck has excelled. He trained in Internal Medicine at Johns Hopkins where he served as Chief Resident for the late A. McGehee Harvey. Subsequently, he became Chair of Medicine at Case Western Reserve University, 1973-1986. For excellence as a Chair, he will receive, in 2007, the Robert H. Williams Distinguished Chair of Medicine Award conferred by the Association of American Physicians. Chuck then became Professor of Medicine at Brown University, 1986-present. He is currently Director of the Brown Center for AIDS Research.
Chuck's academic career includes far more contributions than one can list in this dedication. But some major themes warrant particular consideration.
In his early faculty years, he worked on fluid and electrolyte balance, and was among the first to identify angiotensin II as the principal stimulator to aldosterone secretion.
He made seminal contributions to understanding the pathophysiology of cholera and cholera-like syndromes in clinical and experimental studies which contributed to the development of oral rehydration therapy for secretory diarrheas in developing countries, most notably in the Indian Subcontinent.
Almost immediately following the appearance of AIDS, Chuck involved himself heavily, both experimentally and clinically, in the diagnosis and treatment of AIDS and in humane care for patients afflicted with AIDS. About 20 years ago, he developed a unique program in which Brown University faculty assumed the care for all persons living with HIV/AIDS in the Rhode Island prison system.
Chuck is an exceptional teacher recognized, among other ways, by the Distinguished Teacher Award from the American College of Physicians. He is a superb clinician versed in all aspects of Internal Medicine. He has therefore been honored as a Master of the American College of Physicians, and has received more encomia than virtually anyone in academic medicine.
It has been my genuine privilege to work with Chuck Carpenter, a dear friend. I know I speak for all of the Editors when I say that we will miss you, Chuck, and that replacing you with an individual having your assets and talents will be a singularly difficult task.
